S2 Springs
The springs on the Lauf Carbonara are made of military spec S2 glassfiber that is extremely tough on hits and flexible in the direction of the travel. The springs have been “shocked” in our test lab over 400.000 times reaching 40mm amplitude every time.
Progressive
The Lauf Carbonara has 60mm of travel with progressive spring rate. This means that the further the fork compresses the springs become stiffer. This helps keeping the fork from bottoming out while staying sensitive to small bumps.
Zero Maintenance
The design of the Lauf Carbonara is based around eliminating all “moving parts”, and therefore, friction and maintenance. The monocoque carbon fiber structure delivers incredible strength, and the test-fork we have in our lab has already been “shocked” over 170 thousand times, without showing any signs of wear and tear. That equals more mountain-biking than you’ll manage to cram into at least 5 years of action!
Warranty & Crash Replacement
All Lauf forks are warranted for 5 years to the original owner. If your fork is more then 5 years old and something happens we still care about you! If you happen to crash we offer 50% discount from the MSRP to the original owner. For all above please send an e-mail to warranty@laufforks.com with a photo of the product and a short description. We'll be in touch shortly.

"In the end, I found the Lauf Carbonara to be an amazingly versatile carbon fork, more than I thought of it as a suspension fork with limitations. It really is a beast all its own, and worth anyone’s consideration that likes to take fatbikes to places that only fatbikes can go."

"I think the one thing that stood out the most, was that I never really noticed it. Combined with a fat tire, this fork gives just enough give to take the edge off the trail. But it keeps the front end light enough that you don’t realize you have a suspension fork."
